Play-acting and Play-suffering'
Frances Mackenzie
The amateur dramatic movement has never been more popular throughout the country, and acting for the love of acting and not for the sake of material reward has never been on a higher level. Everywhere, in big towns, small towns, and tiny country villages, men and women, youths and girls, turn out after their day's work to rehearse, perhaps, in a draughty hall, to try to remember the words they have repeated to themselves over and over again, in bus or on bicycle or in bed, to get into the skin of the part they have been cast for, to make believe.
This talk is by Frances Mackenzie, who is Organising Director of Drama Schools for the British Drama League and who must be as familiar with town and village drama as anyone in the country.

: FOR FARMERS ONLY

Anthony Hurd
This evening Anthony Hurd is to discuss some of the developments in fruit growing and market-gardening that have come about during the last few years. A considerable number of general farmers have been enterprising enough, as traditional methods of farming were unprofitable, to try their hand at growing fruit and vegetables for the market. As the demand for fresh produce has grown, and with the assistance of tariffs imposed on Continental produce, the British farmer has had an opportunity of developing a new line of production, and this he has done with considerable success.

Conducted by HAROLD LOWE
Overture, Patrie (My Country)Bizet
Georges Bizet had written operas, including La Jolie Fille de Perth before the war of 1870, but at that date he was little known and success had not come to him. This overture to Sardou's Patrie was admittedly inspired by the sufferings of his country during its terrible ordeal in the Franco-German war, and in power and orginality it exceeded anything that Bizet had composed hitherto.

: IT'S HAPPENING NOW

Howard Marshall and others
It is estimated that since the war as much as one-sixth of the country's population has been rehoused on municipal and private housing estates. On these estates housing conditions may be better than they were formerly, but one often hears the complaint that people who are taken haphazard from all sorts of neighbourhoods in which they felt at home and who are dumped down in places where they know no one and which frequently lack such social centres as public houses, cinemas, churches, billiard and dance halls, often feel lonely. On some of the estates imaginative residents, sometimes with the backing of the local authorities, sometimes entirely on their own, have set to work and have acquired community centres providing recreation for men, women and children.
This evening, speakers with practical experience of this work will discuss with Howard Marshall some of the successes and difficulties with which they have met.

Pianoforte Music played by Frank Mannheimer
Nocturne No. 5, in B flat, Op. 37
Theme and Variations, Op. 73
Frank Mannheimer's first visit to Europe was in the ranks of the American Army during the war. It was at the very outset of his career that music had thus to be laid aside, but he was fortunately able to return to it, and when he next came from the United States he had already a firmly established reputation as a concert pianist. Since then he has often played in London and at all the principal European centres, where he has shown himself to be an artist of great power and subtlety.
He was chosen as the representative American pianist to join the Brosa Quartet in Bloch's Quintet at the International Festival at Siena, in 1928, and has appeared in England on several occasions in recitals of American music.
Further recitals in this series will be broadcast as follows : -Wednesday (National), Thursday (National), Friday (Regional), and Saturday (Regional).

ENDREZE (baritone)
THE LYRA QUARTET:
Gordon Walker (flute) ; David Wise
(violin) ; Anthony Collins (viola) ;
John Cockerill (harp)
Roy Douglas's Trio for flute, violin, and viola was written in 1935 expressly for members of the Lyra Quartet, to whom it is dedicated. One reason why this combination was chosen was on account of the few works written for it: Beethoven and Reger are among the very few composers who have written trios for flute, violin, and viola. The four movements are not connected thematically at all and are quite short. The idea occurred to Mr. Douglas to give them as sub-titles the names of the four fairies of The Midsummer-Night's Dream: Cobweb, Moth, Peasblossom, and Mustard Seed.

About this project

This site contains the BBC listings information which the BBC printed in Radio Times between 1923 and 2009. You can search the site for BBC programmes, people, dates and Radio Times editions.

We hope it helps you find information about that long forgotten BBC programme, research a particular person or browse your own involvement with the BBC.

Through the listings, you will also be able to use the Genome search function to find thousands of radio and TV programmes that are already available to view or listen to on the BBC website.

There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time - not those of today.

Welcome to BBC Genome
